Weaving

Our weavings are created solely with materials harvested from our wäŋa (country) such as gunga (pandanus) and baḻgurr (inner bark of the kurrajong) using knowledge that is embedded in law and passed down through our ancestors.

 

Colours come from diljti ga raŋi (land and sea). We are renown for our mol ga ḻirrbuku (black and brown) dyes that are created from plants that grow in Milingimbi.  Yellows, oranges, and reds, are harvested by boat from nearby homelands. We also rub and paint our weavings with ochre pigments harvested from the shores of Milingimbi and surrounding homelands- this was the way of our ancestors, before the time of immersion dyes.
